Description by OLDIES.com:
Featuring an all-star cast, eye-popping special effects, non-stop excitement, action and laughs, Monster in the Closet
pay homage to many of the great films of the horror genre. If you liked Mel Brooks" High Anxiety
, you'll shriek with horror and humor at this film.
San Francisco is the scene of a series of bizarre murders and all the murders have taken place in the victims' closets. A local newspaper editor (Jesse White) sends his obituary writer to follow up on what he believes is a routine story; meanwhile, the murders continue. A lovely couple (Paul Dooley and Stella Stevens) as well as a blind man (John Carradine) fall victim to the Monster in the Closet. When the monster finally decides to come out of the closet, the President declares a national emergency and sends the army to destroy it.
A newspaper editor learns of some bizarre murders and sends his obituary writer out to follow-up on what he believes to be an insignificant story. What develops is an off-beat thriller that revolves around a series of horrifying, but "hilarious" murders that occur only in closets.
